Pfaff, Gill & Ports, Ltd. represents the plaintiffs in both these lawsuits.
- Estate of T.E. v. Pekin Hospital and Estate of Dr. Dwayne McQuitty – Bruce Pfaff and Michael Gill represent the estate of a 35-year-old man who bled to death after Dr. McQuitty negligently operated and failed to diagnose and treat the internal bleeding.
- Estate of D.S. and Estate of F.R. v. Agridyne – Matthew Ports and Bruce Pfaff represent the estates of two men who died after succumbing to dangerous fumes while cleaning rail cars at a facility in Pekin, Illinois.
